I have a Kala Concert solid acacia wood ukulele. I am wondering if I need to do anything to protect the wood? Is there a special polish? Should I just wipe it down with a clean cloth after playing? Do the oils from your hand eventually break down the finish?

Microfiber cloth wipe down whenever needed, and a once-a year (or so) application of the smallest drop of pure lemon oil to the fretboard each year.

There you go.

Depending on where you live, you also may need to humidify your ukulele. Especially if it's solid wood. You won't like those cracks if the wood dries out too much.
